Arts A pond



University has many opportunities for the photographer, some prefer to focus (literally) on the wildlife and others on the architecture and the changing ambience of the campus as the year progresses. Photography as an art is of course, creative in many different senses. With the advent of digital cameras and its frequent partner Adobe Photoshop, enthusiasts can change images in a multitude of ways. I prefer to keep Photoshop to a minimum and do not have the full program. On the whole I keep any tweaking to simple techniques that preceded Photoshop and were the norm in the darkrooms of old, such as cropping or 'burning in' i.e adjusting the contrast for shadows or highlights. In this blog, my intention is to post a few photos along with thoughts on some of the technical aspects.

The campus often looks at its best in the early evening. This photo was taken at dusk in the winter using a Canon S70 camera, not a DSLR. However, the S70 does allow bracketed exposures and so it was possible to use three different exposures to get the colour and detail into both the very dark parts of the scene and the lighter parts of the sky and windows. The three exposures are merged together to produce the single image. This also partly accounts for the slight blurring which in itself is not unpleasant and the lack of any ripples in the water. The posterisation effect in the sky is not present in the printed version, it seems to be an effect which occurs with some computer monitors.

Alone in London one night and I came across the most fantastic 'blading troupe. Took a good deal of photos; the very best are here.

I've just put up some new material, hence the SPLASH post. Enjoy them - and feel free to leave comments on the site. Josh x
